I read a lot of comments from people thinking Finns are rude, but I don't see that at all. I think it's just a case of not sugar coating anything that's mistaken for rudeness. chuckle.gif

Here's an article:

Finnish silence can be golden, says American expert

I always come back to this quote on this matter:

Silence is not always tact, but it is tact that is golden, not silence.
-- Samuel Butler
1612-1680, British Poet, Satirist

It's a strange (non)interaction when a person remains silent when the other person is expecting a reply; within the same culture or with different cultures. I would imagine the person instigating the interraction is left to image all sorts of things; awkward and weird.

Quote:Nearly 400 passengers and crew aboard 2 different cruise ships were throwing up last week — but not from seasickness.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Monday that at least 121 people traveling on Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas and 276 people aboard Princess Cruises’ Ruby Princess fell ill with gastrointestinal symptoms last week.

This continual bad news is turning me off crusing too. 13.gif

So, that must be for 7 days, there and back with food? The Yukon looks like pristine wilderness in photos I see, I wonder if it really is? Will you take lots of pics?

Actually, if hubby and I ever get to B.C., that's the first road trip we're taking...up to the Yukon. Witnessing the Northern Lights with my naked eye is on my bucket list.


Any place in Canadia is good for Northern Lights. I went to school in the UP and they are really bright and colorful at the peak of the sunspot cycle. Cycle 23 or Cycle 22 had better lights. The current cycle isn't very active but we should be at the peak.

No we haven't seen them for a while, but that is also due to our location. You need a clear view of the northern horizon to see them unless it's one of those spectacular ones that cover the whole sky. But haven't seen that in years.

Again!

Quote:A spokesman for the company said that the ship had a "technical issue", involving a malfunction of the ship's backup emergency diesel generator. Thousands of passengers, who were on the last leg of a seven-day cruise, would be compensated and flown home from St Maarten, it said. The Dream was supposed to leave St Maarten on Wednesday.

From Wiki:
Honduran authorities delegated the investigation of the accident to the Autoridad de Aviación Civil of El Salvador as per the Convention on International Civil Aviation.[6] According to black box recordings and a report from the NTSB, the cause of the accident was a human error by the deceased pilot, who landed 900 meters (0.5 miles) beyond the landing marks and in the wrong direction (the tower had suggested to land the opposite way).

Some facts about Toncontín International Airport and the A320:

1. Runway length is 2,021 m
2. Landing Distance Available is 1649 m.
3. 740m at sea level is the theoretically shortest landing distance for an A320 (max braking).
4. At the altitude of Toncontin it would take 831.464 m absolute minimum.
5. Normal landing speed at sea level is around 68.4 m/s

What actually happened is it was rainy and foggy. The aircraft landed 400m (unlike what wiki says) beyond the landing threshold with a 6.2 m/s tail wind at 81.8 m/s (20% above minimum) it took 7 seconds to bring the nose wheel down, with braking. Since maximum braking can't occur until the nose wheel touches - the aircraft did a 7 second wheelie. The rain would have precluded maximum braking anyway.

The pilot should have done a touch and go.

Instead, "At 70kt IAS, upon call-out of the copilot, the captain selected IDLE REV. The remaining distance to the runway end was approximately 190m". Less than 200 meters from the end of the runway still above the normal landing speed at sea level, the pilot shut down the engines.

The hispanic phrase for the pilot's actions is estúpido.
